Shanghai Live: WDL Call Room
This Saturday, the Wanda Diamond League was scheduled to land in Shanghai for the third meeting of the season. Instead, the global coronavirus crisis means we are still waiting for the season to begin...and where better to wait than in the call room?
Following our romp through a decade of Doha highlights in the first episode of the Wanda Diamond League Call Room, we head to Shanghai for the second instalment of our socially distanced series.
It's another stellar line-up on this week's show, with Omar McLeod, Faith Kipyegon and Murielle Ahouré dropping by to share their memories of Shanghai.
Kenyan middle distance ace Kipyegon has particularly good memories of Shanghai, having smashed her PB there on several occasions and set a new meeting record there in 2016.
Ivorian sprint star Ahouré meanwhile, opens up on why competing in China is less challenging for a globetrotter like her than it might be for some other athletes, and how she uses visualisation techniques to prepare for races.
And Jamaican hurdles sensation McLeod tells us why Shanghai is his favourite meet, talking us through his four back-to-back wins in the Chinese city, the latest of which saw him bounce back from personal tragedy to take one of the most emotional victories of his career.
We will also have a cameo appearance Chinese local boy Xie Zhenye, and plenty of other highlights from a decade of Diamond League action in Shanghai.
Watch the Wanda Diamond League Call Room for Shanghai LIVE from 18.00 GMT
